Haylee's Princess Adventure

wish child Haylee with princess

“ Being able to be there with no worry of hospital stays or chemo, but instead worrying about what princess would we meet that day was truly amazing. ”


- Melissa, Haylee's mother

Haylee Meets PrincessesNothing makes six-year-old Haylee's eyes sparkle more than Disney princesses. Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Haylee loves to draw, paint, and sing, but above all else she loves everything Disney. The Rapids City family learned about Make-A-Wish through Melissa’s work, and referred their daughter shortly after diagnosis. 

“When we told her she could decide her wish she didn't even hesitate, she said Disney World.”

Make-A-Wish soon sent Haylee and her family to central Florida for fun at Walt Disney World® Resort. There, Haylee experienced riding her first roller coaster and spinning madly in the tea cups. She also enjoyed staying at Give Kids the World Village. Most of all, Haylee enjoyed having dinner with all of the Disney Princesses.

“We had such amazing time but what impacted our lives the most was being able to be there as a family and celebrating Haylee’s fight and beating cancer!” Melissa shared.

“Being able to be there with no worry of hospital stays or chemo, but instead worrying about what princess would we meet that day was truly amazing.”
